I’ve been saying it for a while (here, here, here) that the administration in Israel and the United States have been pushing for war with Syria. From Syria, the U.S. and Israel seems intent on provoking some sort of hostile action from Iran.
There were fears late last year regarding chemicals weapons use. These fears have been realized in the past week or so. Reports of chemical weapon use have now surfaced, with both sides pointing the finger at the other. Western media has been working hard to demonize Syrian President Assad. The media, prompted by Israel firsters, has already decided that it was Assad who committed the chemical weapon attack, even though there is strong evidence against that notion.
… a medic at the local civilian hospital – said that he personally witnessed Syrian army helping those wounded and dealing with fatalities at the scene. That Syrian soldiers were among the reported 26 deaths has not been disputed by either side. The military source who spoke to Channel 4 News confirmed that artillery reports from the Syrian Army suggest a small rocket was fired from the vicinity of Al-Bab, a district close to Aleppo that is controlled by Jabhat al-Nusra – a jihadist group said to be linked with al-Qaeda and deemed a “terrorist organisation” by the US.
The US Secretary of State John Kerry is now openly suggesting that the U.S. support the rebels, prior to this the support was somewhat clandestine, and surrounded by obfuscation.
Secretary of State John Kerry pledged an additional 60 million dollars in direct aid to the rebels, marking the first time Washington will directly supply rebel forces…Senator John McCain reiterated his long-held position that the U.S. should intervene more directly in the uprising. Levin and McCain have signed on to a letter urging President Obama to establish no-fly zones and provide more military aid to rebels.
As was reported in Activist Post’s arictle titled “West Drops Syria WMD Narrative As Evidence Points to Western-Armed Terrorists” this support implicates the U.S. in some awful stuff: funding terrorist who would use chemical weapons against a civilian population. The U.S. lost the moral high ground long ago, and seems to have no intent to try to change that stance.
The march to war continues, it shouldn’t be too long now. There doesn’t seem to be any way to stop this train we are on. The only option is to just hold on and prepare the best way you can. It won’t be pretty…
